Not trying to be a downer but the 77-78 seat is sooo comfortable and such a huge improvement from the previous years. To each their own though.

I have already ridden it long distance.  Not too bad.

Only a bit uncomfy at a complete stop, due to the hard frame putting lots of pressure on my inner thigh area, due to my short legs. Lol. Main reason I switched the seat, needed lower overall seat height.

Do you like to have both feet on the ground? Are you a beginner rider??

With the new seat, I am now flat footed on the ground. Like I mentioned, I have short legs. I used to ride a while back on a 1983 Hondamatic 450. First time riding again in about 2yrs.

A lot of (beginning) riders think they need to have both feet on the ground.  I don't, when stopped at a light, left foot is on the ground, right foot stays on the peg with the brake on.
Try it....

I do that many times,  there's just times that I'm at an odd hilly or steep grade stop,  and I feel more secure flat footing both feet. Thanks for the advice.
